Immediately after a 12 hour flight looking anywhere for dinner. This restaurant took us and fed. Great onion soup and filet mignon 16 oz. Lunch was not bad. But the mussels were not very tasty.
And the restaurant was not very pleasant smell
Overall, we liked

What a jewel of a place. You MUST have the slab of bacon appetizer--and after eating here, wait three weeks before checking your cholesterol level.

During restaurant week my wife and I hopped a bus down to the seaport area and went to Mark Joseph Steakhouse. We also went to two other restaurant week venues but Mark Joseph stole the show. Unlike other restaurant week specials, Mark Joseph offered their first team menu and it was great. My wife and I had extras as we usually due ordering creamed spinich and clams on the half shell in addition to our shell steaks which were done perfectly. The wine list had a number of reasonable choices. No doubt Peter Luger is the king of New York City steakhouses and I rate Ben and Jacks next, but Mark Joseph is right up near the top. Definitely better than Quality Meats and Del Friscos and probably the equal of Palm and Smith & Wollensky. Our server was tops, a very helpful and personable young man. You won't be disappointed at Mark Joseph.

We booked this restaurant as we were looking for a steak restaurant to round off our Honeymoon before having a night sailboat cruise on the river so it had to be near the South Sea Port area. The food was lovely. We had the fixed menu option which turned out to be good value. For starters, I had Baked Clams which were delicious and my Husband had the Sizzling Canadian Bacon. The bacon was about 30 cms long and the only thing on the plate! (See photo below) It was really tasty but really meaty, it would have benefited from something else on the plate to cut through the saltiness.
I had the Fillet Mignon which is the best steak I've ever had. My husband had the 20 oz steak, he asked for medium to well-done and it come to the table more like rare. I raised this with the waiter. He apologised and said he'd cook it at our table. He brought out a red hot ceramic plate with sizzling butter and cooked the pieces of steak to his liking in front of us. The steak tasted amazing, buttery and salty. YUM.
Also had dessert which was ok, can't really remember what type of cheesecake it was though.
The place was busy and appeared to a favourite with large business men in large suits eating large pieces of steaks off very large plates.
Overall, amazing steak and would go back but perhaps just for the steak.

Me and my Associates ate here Thursday night. We called Peter Lugers but the were full. We arrived at Six and the Bar was jumping. We were quickly seated in the elegant dining room. I will say it would be nice if they placed a door between the Bar and the Dinning room to cut out the noise from the Bar, but I presume it is part of the atmosphere.
Our server was Extremely Courteous and professional. We had the Tomato and onion salad, which was great. We ordered the Porterhouse for three, although there were four of us. The Steak came out crackling and perfectly cooked and sliced. It was rich and delicious. Really tender and tasty, just perfect.We also ordered the hash browns, cream spinach and mushrooms.
The hash browns and mushrooms were okay, but I definitely recommend the creamed spinach. For dessert we had the cheese cake and Shlaug. A must to finish the meal.

Let me say, Peter Lugers is out and Mark Joseph is in. It is much more elegant and the same price as Lugers. And the service is simply the best. If you are in New York and want a truly outstanding Aged Prime Steak in a classy and first rate establishment, this is the place to go.
